for some time i’ve contemplated how to create bridges between two differing ‘sides’ of a conversation.
• LGBT || evangelicals
• neo-reformed || emergent/ing
• complementarian || egalitarian
• et cetera
instead of stooping to the level of name calling or merely ‘agreeing to disagree’ (which seems to me like a cop-out), what i’d like to create is a forum for elevated dialogue and constructive conversation between groups that aren’t seeing ’eye to eye.’
i’ve sent out a few requests to friends from varied theological backgrounds and perspectives, inviting them to dialogue on these (and other) issues in a blog series here at the WayWard follower in the upcoming months :
• what is the gospel?
• centrality of social justice in christian living
• gay rights/gay marriage
• inter-faith relationships and dialogue
does this sound like it would be interesting or helpful? are there any other topics you would like to see addressed?
